The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect until 11p.
Damaging straight line winds and large hail are of biggest concern as these scattered strong to severe storms continue to advance southeast. This is all in association with a cold front moving into a very warm, moist, and unstable air mass.
Forecast radar this evening continues to show a broken line of strong to severe thunderstorms advancing into central IN during the evening hours.
In addition to the hail and wind threat, locally torrential downpours are a good bet as precipitable water values (PWATs) approach 2″+ in some areas.
We’ll turn much quieter during the overnight as the cold front passes through the region. A northwest wind shift will allow a drier air mass to slip into central IN come Tuesday morning.
A quite Tuesday is needed, as more active times loom come Wednesday…
